Here is an article whose subject – gendercide- is absolutely devastating. The statistics are staggering.

What is gendercide? Gendercide is the systematic killing of members of a specific sex. 

The ugly facts of gendercide: China and India kill more girls than are born in the whole United States in one year. And then the aftermath: In China there are 37 million more men than women, leading to kidnappings of women from other countries and resulting in a high number of child brides. Filmmaker Evan Grae Davis has filmed a documentary that focuses on these two countries.

Even in a secular society, life is the most basic human right there is. For those of us that live our lives for the God who created us, it is much, much more. Psalm 127:3 says, „Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.” Ezekiel 16:36-38 speaks about the judgment against those that gave the blood of their children to their idols. Jeremiah 22:17 speaks about „shedding innocent blood, and for practicing oppression and violence.” Just look at the picture below, the terrified women held in a cell and awaiting a brutal forced abortion after having been busted in by the Family Planning Police of China and arrested. And then there is Exodus 20:13 „You shall not murder”, one of 10 commandments given to mankind.

The 3 Deadliest Words In The World – „It’s A Girl”

In India, China and many other parts of the world today, girls are killed, aborted and abandoned simply because they are girls. The United Nations estimates as many as 200 million girls are missing in the world today because of this so-called „gendercide”.

This is a trailer for a documentary that shows some of the faces of women and societies in China and India that contribute to the genocide of girls. Following a 3 minute documentary trailer for the film, ‘It’s a Girl’ director Evan Grae Davis gives a TEDxTalk.

About the speaker:
From the Aral Sea disaster in Eastern Europe to poverty in Africa to social transformation among tribal groups of South America, ‘It’s a Girl’ director Evan Grae Davis has traveled the globe with camera in hand for 16 years. Evan has dedicated his career to advocating for social justice through writing and directing short documentaries and educational videos championing the cause of the poor and exploited. Evan draws from his experience and passion as he lends leadership to Shadowline Films, a team of filmmakers who share a common concern for the critical issues of our time. It’s a Girl is his first feature-length documentary.

It’s a girl, a film being released this year, documents the practice of killing unwanted baby girls in South Asia. The trailer’s most chilling scene is one with an Indian woman who, unable to contain her laughter, confesses to having killed eight infant daughters.

The statistics are sickening. The UN reports approximately 200 million girls in the world today are ‘missing’. India and China are said to eliminate more female infants than the number of girls born in the US each year. Lianyungang in China has the worst infant gender ratio on record with 163 boys born for every 100 girls. Taiwan, South Korea and Pakistan are also countries in which unwanted female babies are aborted, killed or abandoned.

Their doors were broken in by the Family Planning Police in a family planning raid. Not only will they suffer forced abortions, but in many cases sterilizations. (Photo from video)

Evan talks about the global problem of female genocide using some eye opening statistics, powerful real life experiences and most importantly through his documentary making journey. His documentary is called „It’s a girl”.
